Reviews for White Chocolate-Almond Dipped Cookies
"Made a batch to take to the office. They are just okay. I like the idea of another reviewer to use walnuts."
"Melt in your mouth yumminess!! I made these for the cookie exchange at work last year. BIG hit even with the fussiest of snackers. They have been added to my annual Christmas cookie lineup!"
"My husband called this one a keeper. I used chopped walnuts with the white almond bark as I didn't have almonds on hand."
